d. There is a passive deficit of $50 billion, and a structural deficit of$150 billion
If the actual budget deficit is $100 billion, the economy is operating$250 billion below its
potential, and the marginal tax rate is 20 percent, then passive deficit = 100 -
250*0.2 = 50, structural deficit = 250 - 50 - 50 = 150
